Rose Ellen Gardner who regularly attends mixers and is a Love Catalina Island member at the Friend level, won the ‘big’ prize at last week’s Mixer. The Jan. 19 Mixer was hosted by Catalina Island Medical Center at their fitness location in the Shops at Atwater. Along with physical therapy, CIMC will be offering gym memberships at the fitness center soon.

Mixers are fun, after-hours networking events that typically provide food and beverage and are held on the third Thursday of the month. All Love Catalina Island members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Each attendee is entered into a drawing for prizes which vary with the event.

Next month’s Mixer will be held at Golf Gardens on Feb. 16, 6-8 p.m. Check out for more information. Members only pay $10 when they RSVP for a Mixer. Non-members can attend but the cost is $15 with an RSVP or $20 at the door.
